Recipe: Easy Chinese-Style Pork Chops

I was a little hard pressed for time recently and have been thinking of simple dishes to cook. One of them is this Chinese Pork Chop. This is a dish which my husband and I will agree on as our kind of comfort food. Coincidentally, our mums used to cook it for us in our growing up years.

I know our readers will love this dish as it is so simple and fast to whip up, and the meat is flavourful and succulent. Who enjoys a hard and dry pork chop? To achieve tender, moist and juicy pork chops, I tenderize the meat with this secret ingredient: CORNFLOUR.

Mummy's Kitchen

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.
